Where Art Thou?

The finer things of life

We’ve all been cooped up in our dorms enough over the past few days, and Bwog’s Arts Editor Kyra Bloom has the perfect remedy. Stretch your legs across campus or the city to check out these operas, musicals, comedies, and other arts events. If you have the inside scoop on another cultural happening, email events@bwog.com.

Thursday

  • Lydia and Tom, a new musical written entirely by Columbia students Solomon Hoffman and Nick Parker, both CC ’14, opens. Come support the creative team and cast in their incredible endeavor in the Lerner Black Box. Free with CUID. Edit: Postponed until next week!
  • Profound poets Anne Carson and Alice Oswald read from their work in Sulzberger Parlor at 7 pm. Both are prize-winning poets with a great deal of experience, so enjoy their free wisdom.
  • The Ensemble Sakhioba (“sweet singing”) perform traditional Georgian Chant in Diana Event Oval  at 7:30 pm. The group will be performing both church and folk music as well as instrumental music and traditional dances. Free.

Friday

  • Alcina, an opera by George Frederic Handel, performed by The Opera Company of Brooklyn in conjunction with the Barnard music program. This is the tale of the tragic hero Ruggiero and his true love, Bradamante, who frees him from the spell of the sorceress. $5 for students and seniors, $10 otherwise. Edit: Sandy has postponed this as well. Check their website for new times.
Opening/Ongoing
  • Roundabout Theatre Company presents the world-premiere comedy of Bad Jews, a play with a description that seems hilarious and approprate for many: “Daphna Feygenbaum is a Real Jew—just ask the Israeli boyfriend she met on Birthright. So when her cousin Liam brings home his shiksa girlfriend Melody and declares ownerships of their grandfather’s Chai necklace, it sparks a viciously hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy.” $20, runs through Dec. 16.
  • Edvard Munch’s The Scream has been moved to the MoMA as of last week. Although Columbia students may no longer have free admission, catch this guy before he howls into the next museum if you’ve never seen him in person.
